Default i have a problem with my distributor its on a 95 honda civic dx?

Ok here it is i have a 95 honda civic dx with a 1.5L engine the block says its a d15b7 but i have no idea what the head is. Here is my problem when the car gets running and is hot it starts to not let me shift past 3500 rpms so i checked out the code it was a 4 witch is the crank angle sensor so i bought a new distributor it was the TD 41u but see when i put that one in it is giving me a new code witch is 9 the No. 1 cylinder position but see heres the thing the distributor that was in the engine is a TD 31u witch is out of a 90-91 accord so im trying to find out from anyone here if its ok to use the td41u will it hurt the engine or do i have to get the td31u any thing will be helpful thanks ok so i have both of the dizzys but now the accord distributor is stumbling 1st -5th gear until it reaches 4k rpmalso is it even possible to put a 90-91 honda accord 2.2L head onto a honda civic 1.5L block and if so wouldnt you have to change out the ECU

It doesn't sound initially like a distributor problem, more like a coil or timing belt or heat range on the spark plugs.

sounds like the timing is off for sure, but as far as accord parts... no.. you want to stick with whats suppose to go on the car, it wouldn't line up as the accord block is bigger...

Just had a swap done on my car less than a week ago went from the d16y7 to the ZC version of the motor, the ZC is easy to find and seems to be the common crossover engine for 92-00 civic Dx's rip the parts from a ZC and it will integrate right into your d15

It sounds like a timing problem. You may have put the new distibutor in wrong. If you have a timing light and know how to use it, do so, if not, just take it to a shop. And a 2.2L head will not fit on a 1.5L block no matter where it came from. The head also contains part of the cylinder itself, If the head and block even line up and you can bolt them together, you still have to everbore the block. Stop trying to second guess everything, you're wasting your money, and possibly your car's engine. Use what is supposed to go in the car, if the timing is right, but it still stumbles, I'd guess a head gasket, cracked head, cracked block, or valve train. If you don't know, don't risk it, and just take it to a shop. When changing a distributor, you mark where the rotor was in relation to the cap (on the cap itself), and where the rotor in relation to the vehicle itself (marking the car if possible, best to try to get it pointed at body paneling before removing). But you've gone too far for all of that at this point, and you may have done damage to your engine already. I'd suggest taking it into a shop where people KNOW what they're doing.

Dear Friend,
I have the impression that you set the wrong distributor in the engine.
There are three sensors in the piece, and depending on the engine they send different signals to the control unit, basically to set the timing the crank speed and others (CLK mainly). You cannot put a different model in the engine unless you know the wiring, the signals and be sure that they can be adapted. Get the right one.

Don't guess, be sure to get the right part. If you are going
to a 'parts' store ask for a Honda guy. If they question that,
walk out. A dealer can get the right one.
A name brand 'parts' store usually has a good parts man on staff.
Not always the grey hair one.
Good luck!
